on sunday, house minority leader nancy pelosi and majority leader eric cantor laid out the economic dividing lines. >> what we need is growth. we need growth with jobs. and if you have spending cuts, education of our children and other investments like the national institutes of health where you are hindering growth, you're not going to reduce the deficit. so it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. we have a budget deficit problem that we have to address. we think the deficit and the national debt are at immoral levels. we think they must be reduced. we're sick and tired of paying interest on the national debt. and that's 15% -- that's a large percentage of the budget. >> the tax fight for the president means higher taxes, more revenue. again, we can't be raising taxes every three months in this town, david. and you know, the bottom line is we want tax reform, but we want to go plug thosepresident talks bring down tax rates because we think that's pro-growth and we can let the economy grow and let people earn more money and keep more of it. the president's not talkin
and keeping that focus, i would expect that nancy pelosi's going to be speaker again pretty soon. >> david, obviously, interesting comments of the president there and the first read team says despite and we all know this, the debate over immigration and what to do about gun violence in this country, it is still the economy and they write, david, just in part, there's been no bridging between conservative view of austerity by measures of cutting spending cuts and what the democrats see here. as the solution, especially with sequester. we know that the democrats certainly have their plan as we have been told. they want a 50-50 split of spending cuts and tax hikes. that's the plan democrats are leaning toward but this still really is about the economy and how to solve some of the immediate problems we have. >> yeah. i must tell you that i'm one of the progressives who agrees with the economist paul krugman on this. any time talking about deficits, we are buying in to the right wing mantra somehow deficits are killing the economy. look at great britain and doing with their austerity plans and
an interview with nancy pelosi. so good guest list that they've had there at the caucus event in leesburg, virginia. >>> the other big story that we've been following is from the west coast. it's getting more incredible by the moem. the big bear ski resort outside of l.a. is now the epicenter for the search for this former sharpshooter wanted for multiple homicides. 33-year-old christopher dorner murdered three people, including a cop and the daughter of a former police captain. and then in a disturbing manifesto published on facebook, he calls members of law enforcement high-value targets and addresses random thoughts to people like hillary clinton and wayne lapierre. with me now, we have miguel almageur. i want to start with you, miguel. where are we? >> christopher dorner's vehicle was found in big bear, three hours outside of los angeles. that is where a lot of police activity is going on. certainly not the only police activity but officers are focused in that snowy mountain region three hours outside of los angeles. officers on the scene said they found footprints near christopher do
votes and a minority of republicans. >> and basically hand power to nancy pelosi. >> again. that has been the precedent. >> governor, a lot of talk -- there's been a lot of talk about defense cuts, which certainly are half of the sequester. there are other programs being cut. 9.4% to unemployment benefits, 600,000 children and women lose food aid, 10,000 teachers fired. they're trying to emerge from the rock of being unsympathetic to the working poor, the middle class. you have these sequester cuts take place that undermines any argument. >> i depart from democratic orthodoxy in this one. i so bad want to cut all the fat out of the pentagon that i'm willing to do this. it's terrible. i hope we can restore some of the things. 2% medicaid cuts don't have any effect on patient care whatsoever. it is true that there are some bad cuts in there from a democratic point of view. we are never again going to get a chance to cut the pentagon back from where it's been. pentagon hasn't had any significant cuts for 30 years. a lot of money that's going to be cut is money that was not asked for but

. and that you did not throw the games. i want to congratulate and thank nancy pelosi for her tireless efforts in the last election cycle and all of her leadership. thank you, joe kelly, my fellow new yorker. i understand she had to leave, but i was always reassured to see her on television when i was worried about the outcome. i want to thank steve israel, who i think has been one of the most thoughtful people in the house and who proved once again that if you really want to be successful in the long run in this business, you have to be good politics and policy. you have to think about what we're going to do and how will affect people. i have the honor of campaigning for a lot of you in the last election. i am very excited about the new members.
